About We are a community of women celebrating our unique beauty. The Beauty Vanity is a community celebrating the unique beauty of the everyday Asian American woman. Started by Alyson Alconis in 2013, her site has transformed into a beauty destination where women can share and read about makeup, skincare, hair, health, and everything else beauty related. Aimed to inspire and uplift, it is a place where we can share beauty routines, makeup looks, beauty tips, and our favorite products. The Beauty Vanity is based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
